Rosie Emerson, born in 1981, is a contemporary artist working almost exclusively on representing the female form. Emerson’s figures draw reference from archetype’s old and new, from Artemis to the modern day super model, each solitary figure, becomes an allegory of her own fantasy.

Her screen-prints, using unusual materials including charcoal powder, ash and saw dust shift the focus of printmaking from precision and replication, to creation of unique, hand-finished prints with subtle texture. Her recent cyanotype works enable her to montage objects, with real size photographic negatives. Using the UV light from the sun to expose objects directly on the surface, she explores the interplay between painting, collage and photography.

Her work is widely collected and exhibited both in the UK, as well as internationally, through galleries, art fairs and museums. She has also been commissioned by brands and individuals including Sony, Triumph Underwear, Redbull, P&O Cruises, Toms,and Annoushka jewelry. Her work has also been featured in Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Another Magazine, The Financial Times Magazine and The Sunday Times Style Magazine.

In 2014 she was invited to be Artist in residence at Somerset House and was commissioned by Hackney WickED Arts Festival to create a new world record by making the world’s largest Cyanotype photograph.
